Buyers beware! I absolutely loved my PPC XL and used it daily until one day my electricity blinked due to weather, my unit fried even though it was plugged into an outlet with an RFI and now it won't even turn on anymore. Then to make matters worse I called customer service who conveniently "couldn't find" my purchase anymore and refused to replace the unit. My advice, don't even buy one unless you are prepared to fork out the cash for another one when something goes wrong.
Oh and what everyone, literally EVERYONE says about the Teflon coating is very true, it started coming off like the third time I used it, I was just willing to deal with it.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
